Cincinnati Reds left fielder Ryan Ludwick suffered a dislocated shoulder on Opening Day, an injury that will require surgery, the team has announced. Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports the procedure will sideline Ludwick for three months. Tough break for Ryan Ludwick, who undergoes shoulder surgery Wed and will be out three months. #Reds expected to call up Derrick Robinson. — Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) April 2, 2013 Nightengale adds that the Reds are expected to call up Derrick Robinson to replace Ludwick on their roster. Ludwick sustained his injury while sliding head-first into third base during the third inning of Monday’s season opener against the Los Angeles Angels. Ludwick re-signed with the Reds this offseason after posting solid numbers in his first year with Cincinnati in 2012. Last season, the 34-year-old hit .275/.346/.531 with 28 doubles and 26 home runs over 472 plate appearances. It appears that the Reds will use Chris Heisey in place of Ludwick, at least for the time being. They could look outside the organization to increase their depth in his absence, or they could eventually call up top prospect Billy Hamilton and shift Shin-Soo Choo back to a corner outfield position.
